Imam Hosayn’s murder and defeat at Karbalā in 680 CE has resulted in a number of interpretations. The soteriological holds that veneration of Hosayn has salvific implications. However, this chapter focuses upon the politicization of Imam Hosayn from the early 1960s onward by looking at the speeches and works of Ayatollah Khomeini, Dr. ʿAli Shariʿati, and Ayatollah Mesbāh-Yazdi. Subsequently, the chapter turns to Qābel’s novel interpretation which rendered Hosayn a man of peace, eschewing any revolutionary view of creating an Islamic government. This chapter clearly demonstrates Qābel’s originality and his crossing of redlines.
